WhatsApp is the perfect chat platform when it comes to mobile devices. We send short notices to our beloved ones, we gossip, we exchange emoji, we kill time in between destinations, basically we spend moments away from our inner selves, which can be quite exhilarating when anxiety kicks in. WhatsApp is a friend in need, a third party dimension which propels our thoughts and ideas to the ones that are physically far away, but close in thought and communication. WhatsApp Web will roll out on iPhones soon, allowing a constant expansion of users databases and a greater reach, on more diversified platforms.
WhatsApp web allows you to send messages to your friends from your computer and it has now extended the support of its services to iPhone devices. The application allows users to access their messages in Chrome. Up until now, the easy going chat application was only available on Android, Blackberry and Windows devices. Apple was out of the game but starting with the next few days the application will be available on each and every major platform, with iPhone support currently seeing the light of day.
In order to use the web client, users need to access web.whatsapp.com and scan the QR code using WhatsApp on their device to start pairing.
If you want to open WhatsApp QR scanner on the iPhone, you must open the Settings menu in the app before you hit WhatsApp Web. It is highly possible that you don’t see the iPhone option right on the spot but it will most certainly appear soon, as the company is managing the gradual roll out of the service on Apple’s mobile devices.
WhatsApp has proved to be extremely popular all around the world, mostly in part to its support for multiple platforms. One of the main benefits it brings is that it has replaced MMS and SMS messages which are rather expensive in some territories. We live in the era of communication and there’s a constant need for people to keep in touch, either for business reasons or for personal matters. The service’s batch of advantages does not end here, as it allows easy communication across international borders as well.
Presently, the service handles over 30 billion messages on a daily basis and continues to evolve in spite of all the other alternatives the market offers, following its $19 billion acquisition by Facebook, last year.
It is extremely important to note that the web client is merely an extension to the mobile app so it won’t work if your iPhone is not connected to the internet.
